SubjectRe: 15000+ processes -- poor performance ?!
also top is very inefficant with large numbers of processes. use vmstat
or cat out the files in /proc to get the info more efficiantly (it won't
get you per process info, but it son't cause the interferance with your
desired load that top gives you.)
